The Torin ‘Big Red’ Hydraulic Floor Jack is made of heavy-duty steel. This material is about as good as you can get, providing plenty of durability and longevity. You can expect this floor jack to last you for quite a while. It has a 3-ton capacity, which is slightly less than our top pick. However, we don’t think that most homeowners will be missing that last half of a ton. This is fine for most basic mechanic work and we think it’s the best floor jack for the money.
It has two large steel casters and a swivel caster to help with maneuverability. We prefer swivel designs, where possible. They’re just so much easier to use in most cases. The extra-long neck saves you some lifting time, especially when you’re lifting vehicles that are a bit higher off the ground, to begin with.
Like many high-quality floor jacks, this one comes with a bypass system that prevents you from overloading it. This makes the jack much safer and ensures you won’t accidentally hurt yourself while using it. We also liked the single-piston lift pump, which allows you to raise the jack to the desired height very quickly.
